Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol – An IMAX Experience {Ticket Giveaway}

Did you know that the Cineplex IMAX® Theatre Experience has arrived in London? The first movie experience of its kind debuted at the SilverCity London theatres on December 16, 2011.

The first feature showing in the IMAX theatre in London is Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol starring Tom Cruise. My husband and I got to go see this movie and encounter the IMAX experience.


The IMAX® Technology uses the largest commercial film format in motion picture history to create images of incredible sharpness. IMAX® and IMAX® 3D giant flat screens can soar up to eight stories high and the sound system is composed of 44 custom designed speakers that extract 12,000 watts of pure digital surround sound.

And wow! I can attest to those 12,000 watts. The sound is so crisp that at one point I actually looked around when I heard a particular noise that I thought was coming from behind me. It was actually the amazing surround sound capabilities from the movie that caused me to interpret the sound coming from around me.

The IMAX theatre at SilverCity London Cinemas has been designed for use in a multiplex setting. To maximize the field of view in the modified auditorium, the screen was replaced with a larger, slightly curved and specially treated IMAX screen positioned closer to the audience.

And the screen is awesome! It stands wall to wall and floor to ceiling with a curved effect that allows the viewer to feel like they’re inside the story. To add to the life-like viewing experience, the seats in the theatre are enhanced as well to allow the occupant to recline backwards to take it all in. This is something you have to experience yourself as a written description just can’t do it justice.


Right now at SilverCity London IMAX you can catch the following movies:

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and IMAX Experience® and The Adventures of Tintin: An IMAX 3D Experience®

I do recommend Mission Impossible. It was heart-thumping, fist-clenching, comedic and engaging. It’s rated PG for violence and I agree with this rating. I don’t recall any swear words or inappropriate nudity or sex scenes and I did notice children in the theatre. Perhaps aged 8+ but I’ll let you be the judge of that one.


Today on City Mom you can enter to win two tickets to see the movie of your choice with the IMAX Experience® at any theatre in Canada featuring the IMAX Experience®. Three winners will be chosen from the entries made with the Rafflecopter widget below.

Tickets are valid for two entries to one Cineplex Special Event (IMAX Experience) and expire on December 31, 2012.

Good luck and enjoy the show!

Life Choices Natural Foods – Giveaway

Life Choices Natural Foods


If you’re a regular City Mom reader you’ll know that I am more concerned about the food my family and I eat than ever. After completing my recent Detox program and continuing on the path of clean eating, I am extra observant of the ingredients in the foods I buy for my family.

That is why I am proud to share the details of a Canadian company called Life Choices Natural Foods with you today. And I’m excited to be able to offer a giveaway that will allow one lucky reader to win a Life Choices Natural Foods gift pack valued at $25.00.


Life Choices Natural Foods is a natural health foods company based in Toronto with a mission of: Making the Right Choices Easy. All of their products are not only natural, but also kid-friendly! They provide Canadian families with healthy versions of the foods they want to eat, such as Pizza, Mac & Cheese, Meatballs, Chicken Fingers and even Pierogies.

Sometimes making the switch from processed foods to healthy foods can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to our kids. They know what they like and they won’t accept anything less. This can make meal time difficult.

Life Choices Natural Foods has gone about making family meals healthier the right way. You can still choose from your kids favourite foods but you don’t have to compromise on health and quality.

Life Choices Natural Foods

I was able to try out one of their products to test on my family and it was a huge success. Little S is a big fan of chicken nuggets (what child isn’t?) so I chose the vegetable grain fed, raised without antibiotics Chicken Nuggets and they were a big hit. Their custom-made multigrain coating is made with flax, whole grains and oats and provides a good source of Omega-3 and fibre.

Check out the ingredients list: Chicken, Water, Textured Soya Protein, Soya Protein Isolate, Salt, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Spices. In a Coating of Whole Wheat Flour, Toasted Wheat Crumbs with Multigrain Blend (Wheat, Rye, Triticale, Barley, Yellow Corn, Millet, Soy and Flaxseed), Spices, Flaxmeal, Rolled Oats, High Monounsaturated Sunflower Seed Oil, Water, Canola Oil, Yellow Corn Flour, Corn Starch, Wheat Flour, Salt, Guar Gum

And check out the key concepts of this product: Source of Omega-3 from Flax – No Trans Fats – Prepared without frying – No Additives or Preservatives – Source of Fibre and Iron.


With healthy eating you need to read all packaging and labels on the products you buy. The rule of thumb is if you can’t pronounce it or don’t know what it is you should put that product down. If you are unsure of a particular ingredient, do your research before buying.

I felt at peace knowing the ingredients in Life Choices Natural Foods were not only natural but also provided nutritional benefits. Now when little S asks for some of her favourite foods, I have a trick up my sleeve. And with a wide variety of choices like All Beef Hotdogs and Chicken Burgers the meal options seem endless. And because there is no compromising on taste, no one notices that they are healthy…except me, and that is a good thing!
